The Skinny Food Co raises over £10,000 for Notts YMCA

The Skinny Food Co has so far raised a fantastic £10,553 to support young people as part of an ongoing partnership with Nottinghamshire YMCA.

None of this would have been possible without the amazing Skinny Food Co customers ‘rounding up’ their orders on the company’s website and making a donation.

James, Co-Founder and Director of the Skinny Food Co said: “It’s a real privilege and honour to be in partnership with Nottinghamshire YMCA and be able to raise money for such a fantastic cause. Nottinghamshire YMCA has made a huge impact in the local community and here at The Skinny Food Co we want to give back for everything they do.”

Nottinghamshire YMCA has been supporting the local community for 150 years by helping young people to belong, contribute and thrive.

Jo Bradley-Fortune, Director of Corporate Development and Fundraising at Nottinghamshire YMCA, said: “Our shared mission of promoting healthy living for all within our local communities is a fantastic unifier, and we are deeply grateful for The Skinny Food Co empowering customers to make meaningful social change through their online purchases.

“The fantastic amount raised so far will go a long way towards helping young people to belong, contribute and thrive in our local community. 

“Physical and psychological nourishment maintained through a balanced diet, exercise and emotional support is something that many of us often take for granted. For our formerly homeless residents living in YMCA’s supported accommodation, these important life elements have not always been readily available, and so we really hope customers will give what they can and help us to support our community’s most vulnerable members to lead healthier lifestyles.”

Nottinghamshire YMCA would like to thank The Skinny Food Co and their customers for helping us to raise such an amazing amount of money to improve the lives of at-risk young people across the region.
